There's something highly satisfying about chucking all the ingredients into one pot and leaving them to meld into something full of flavour! Less washing-up too...
Neck of lamb is less expensive than many other cuts and, because of the bones, always gives the maximum amount of flavour. This, I think, is an excellent summer casserole.
